Honey, You're Special: Part II

The Art of the Beekeeper!

Savannah Bee Company award-winning artisanal honeys have arrived at Cheese Boutique. These honeys comes from small beekeepers who care for their bees, which is good, because-- what else can I say?-- Bees are really cool. And good honey is amazing.

Available are several varietals of the purest quality and each with their own unique properties-- the essence of the flowers they were made from.

Tupelo
Organic Acacia
Sourwood
Orange Blossom
Black Sage
Raspberry
Winter White (from Northern wildflowers)

Best of all is the raw honeycomb, of which Cheese B possesses several immense slabs for delicious purposes-- and also sold in smaller quantities, nicely boxed, for the general public.

Honey and Biscuits

It is a box of this honeycomb that I brought home. Savannah's brochure suggested serving it on a hot biscuit, or with cheese, and I did a little of both. I rolled out some butter biscuits, sliced up some of the beautiful honeycomb with a hot knife and placed it on the biscuit with a dollop of quark. The wax, in case you are wondering, is entirely edible!

Little hands can't resist a sweet honeycomb treat!



To make something more elaborate, as seen in the picture above (provided by Savannah Bee Co.) , one of these boxed honeycombs makes a stunning centerpiece for a cheese and fruit plate.
